But I NEED to sell it for ……..


We have all had the experience of a combating a seller on the correct List price of their home. They think its worth X and you show them the comparative sales in the area depicting a value of Y. 

Being in the business for over 13 yrs, I have recently run across my FIRST listing that I really need to very seriously think, if I want to service. It’s not like a Realtor to give up easy, and I am certainly one that fits into that category. 

Sellers will say that I NEED to get “this much” out of the sale of their home. The problem is that the needdoes not sometimes jive with true Appraised or market value. 

A Listing Price can be any amount, but if a Seller is realistic and level headed, and they WANT to sell- it has to be put on the mkt at a value similar to other sales, plain and simple.

The hottest part of a new listing is the first 21 days/if it comes out of the gate to high,then it stands the chance of becoming a Stale Listing. Sellers must realize,Realtors are commission sales based on a % so why wouldn’t we list it as high as we could?….. to sound selfish-

In Summary–Like the Kenny Rogers song “You’ve got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them, know when to walk away and know when to RUN.”

Wishing everyone a great Friday & Weekend!
